Bible Studies

Welcome! These studies can be used by small groups or by individuals. Each lesson consists of Scripture readings, analysis and commentary, and discussion questions. Each lesson ends with questions meant for personal/private reflection, and the Mercy study includes a “Call to Action” to practice throughout the week. You’ll find more detailed instructions in the “how to” portion at the beginning of the studies.

If you are interested in purchasing copies of the studies in printed book form, copies are available for a $5 donation from the Office of Adult Formation.  Please contact Joan Watson at or 615-783-0263 to order. See below for electronic options.
